*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette premiered tonight on ABC, and while the 39-year-old star appears smitten by a contestant named Dale, we’re not entirely convinced that Crawley expected to like him.
The episode begins with Chris Harrison explaining that The Bachelorette is a wee bit different this year. Not only is it being filmed in La Quinta, California (instead of the Bachelor mansion), but it’s also following strict social distancing protocol.
After a brief recap of her journey on the franchise (including Juan Pablo Galavis’s season of The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise), Crawley—and the contestants—enter quarantine until she’s cleared by a negative COVID-19 test result.
